think about where wealthy folks are, with respect to the obama administration. and we saw all the data on wall street, the pendulum swinging away from barack obama towards mitt romney, how much of it is genuine self-interest in the sense of, just something as simple as the amount of taxes they will pay? >> i would say all of it. i really would. i would say all of it. the banks have two choices. four years ago, they had the choice between barack obama and they knew exactly who he was going to appoint in terms of ben bernanke and timothy geithner, the combination of the team that had saved the world from utter financial collapse. and that's what they knew they needed. and john mccain, on the other hand, was running around like a headless chicken, and they were scared, they were petrified he would become president, especially with his vice presidential candidate. so they voted in their self-interest, because they knew that the system needed to be saved. now that the system is saved is, they just want to pay less taxes. >> that gets to this question of narrow self-interest versus broad sel
allies, what then? >> well, that's the big -- that's part of the reason why the obama administration has done in the views of many so little toward getting president assad out, and that's because they are just really afraid. syria looks -- syria would be so much worse. you saw the break-up of iraq after the united states invasion in 2003. syria would be that times 10. and there's a lot of worry about what are you going to do with that? you have a worry about the slaughter of the allies in the mountains. you have to worry about just this whole break-up and who would govern this region that is so, so -- this country that is so critical for the whole region. but i do think, though, that chemical weapons would be sort of -- that -- i think for the obama administration, that's a line that they would have trouble defending their passivity so far if assad crossed. that's a hard one. it's hard for me to imagine them not doing anything. >> but given that they haven't really done very much over the past 21 months, and they haven't done very much at all, it's not implausible that they would not do
use of chemical weapons. one official in the obama administration told cnn there are worrying signs that syria may be considering the use of such weapons against rebels. new this morning, this mayor of this town along the border with turkey told cnn that jets dropped two bombs wounding several people. >>> it is 18 minutes past the hour. we are getting an early read on your local news making national headlines this story from "the boston globe." a year after the paper found that stores and restaurants across massachusetts were intentionally mislabeling fish. guess what? the practice continues. dna testing shows some business are showing cheaper, lower quality fish instead of what is written on the label. in one case, slices of what were supposed to be white tuna at a sushi shop were an oily species of fish that can cause digestive issues. that's terrible. >>> the "new york times," this story got so much attention locally here and around the nation. the homeless man who received a pair of shoes from a selfless police officer. reporters caught up with him on the upper west side and his
the obama administration never explaining that they were advising the romney campaign. there has to be transparency and if you're getting paid cash by a candidate or advising a campaign, you have to disclose that. >> jon huntsman criticized big players in the gop saying that just concerned were getting on fox. he said, i looked down the debate stage and half of them were probably on fox contracts at one point in their career. you do that, you write some books, go out and sell some more, you get a radio gig or tv gig out of it or something, you say to yourself, the barriers of entry to this game are pretty damn low. >> you not only write some books but in some cases they buy the books. these organizations and think tank. and they do this. they will buy books and actually give them away, therefore, driving up the sales of the books. they get on a list and people think that they have honestly sold books to individuals all over the country. look, they are not a journalistic be organization. and i know what people will now e-mail me and say. well, they are number one. they are number
ambassadorships for years. neil: on both sides. >> obama administration has put more political ambassadors in than prior republican administraons. now is that good or bad? it is good. the political ambassadors have a direct connection with the president, in countries where they are acredited, if they say, this is at the president wants that is believable. and their loyalty is to the president not state department. and they care a lot in my experience about making sure that president's policies are carriee out. and third, and look -- >> would see? >> no anna wintour from a cord of wood, but i do know she knows something about business,. neil: you support this? >> i don'tnow her. >> i think if it was france it would be perfect. with the style. i don't see a problem. >> i don't but i think that in advocating american business against european ambassadors who spend a consider an poke of theiportion their time on it cod someone in business themselves can be effective. neil: no doubt. we were talking about. joe kennedy, -- john kennedy's father got the ambassadorship to england to get off of fdr's back
in the war itself. it's a difficult challenge. >> we understand the obama administration is now considering arming the syrian rebels, something you've advocated for a long time. obviously in reaction to concerns the administration won't have any sway with the rebels should the assad regime fall. arwa damon has been inside syria for more than about a week now. she's been talking to rebels who say they're angry at the international community for its inaction and won't tolerate meddling now. do you think there's anything at this point the u.s., its allies can do to try to repair that relationship? >> i think we could establish a safe zone from which they could organize and operate. the other problem, as you know, is the dramatic infiltration over the last year or so of these jihadists, al qaeda jihadist extremists from all over the arab world. you name a country and they've come in from there. and unfortunately, some of the countries that are providing the weapons, those have gone directly to these extremists. rather than to the moderate forces. and without a place to organize, to set up a gov
on the fact we're not going to raise the rates on anybody at any point. and what the obama administration has made very clear is it's got to be tax rate. well, the republicans are saying, doesn't have to be the tax rate. you can come up with other money closing loopholes and deductions and stuff like that. so right now it's just a dance, somebody's got -- the republicans have to come up with a formal offer. >> gretchen: i was going to say, they don't have a plan. >> steve: we've heard the president's plan. it's crazy, according to the republicans. now it's time for the republicans to come out with a plan and then have the democrats say, no, that's crazy. >> gretchen: one thing is for sure, nobody is going to get everything that they want. that's just the way it is, i think, in this very difficult situation. both sides are going to have to compromise. >> brian: i think the rolling stones sang about satisfaction and you can't always get it. >> steve: you can't get no. >> brian: we'll go over that and maybe sing it. costco is a company in which the president always leans on the ceo, the guy in c
to a kr credible location. >> and the obama administration is saying what the united nations did unilaterally was a setback. do you agree with that? the body i represent is split. some people are in favor of the u.s. vote. the truth of it, the only thing that will work to deliver a palestinian state side-by-side with a secure state of israel is peace. as you can see we have a chance now. the president has been re-elected. i know he's deeply personally committed to this and we just have to regrip it, i'm afraid. >> what's gone wrong? >> it's partly because there's so much turmoil in the region right now. it's how each side views its own prospects. >> how would you characterize a credible negotiation given the fact as long as we've been alive there's been these problems that keep erupting and never, ever get solved? we've been trying for 20, 30 years. it was 50, 60 years before we got one that worked. and actually back in the year 2000, and again in 2008, you have no option in the end. the only thing that works is to make it credible if we shape the negotiations. give it some shape
's right. house republicans say there will be no deal if tax ritz go up and the obama administration says it's ready to go thelma and louise style over the cliff on january 1. if that's the case, wendell goler live at the white house with what we know is going on behind the scenes. anything happening? >> steve, the president and house speaker john boehner talked on the phone yesterday, but they agreed not to characterize their conversation. so it's unclear how much progress they made. from the outside, it does seem they've moved a bit closer with boehner now agreeing to raise tax collection from the wealthy, though not by raising tax rates. >> we've got to cut spending and i believe to put revenues on the table. the revenues we're putting on the table will come from, guess who, the rich! there are ways to limit deductions, close loopholes, and have the same people pay more of their money to the federal government without raising tax rates which we believe will harm our economy. >> the president lobbied big business leaders yesterday with an appearance at the business round table. his aide
about the location of osama bin laden. >> reporter: the controversy? the obama administration has faced accusations it gave undeserved access to the filmmakers. in real life, everyone involved in the hunt for bin laden remains sworn to secrecy. but the filmmakers say they got firsthand accounts. they just won't say exactly how that happened. >> i think as a reporter you would understand we take prot t protecting our sources and sort of the exact methodology of our sourcing pretty seriously, just in the same way if i asked you how did you source that story. >> katherine, when you hear mark talk this way, are you a journalist or a filmmakerer? >> that's a good question. well, i certainly tried to be as faithful to the research as possible and make a good movie and make a film that was timely. >> reporter: but how much access they got is the issue. >> obviously things went wrong here. >> reporter: congressman peter king, chairman of the house homeland security committee first called for an investigation at both the cia and the pentagon. >> there was an event where operatives were involved
't seem to be holding obama or the administration accountable. sure, they are throwing some funds at it but not in any hurry and not in the am. it's been too little and obviously too late but nevertheless he doesn't seem to be being held accountable. with bush it was unbelievable, a complete double standard. >> we factor in katrina and then we factor in social security is broke, medicare is broke, the country is broke, we are robbing our kid and i ask this question. why do so many people put their faith, hope and trust in the government? because this is the government. this is what you can expect. >> no, because it's stuff. i get my free stuff. sean, right after that interview, i did a thing on the detroit councilwoman who said, you know, we voted for you president obama. where is our stuff? >> the quid p quo. >> there was, you know, buyer's remorse. it was such a draft contrast between people just trying to survive, make through an emergency, emergency, and others who feel because they voted for president obama, they deserve whatever stuff. >> they want a payback. we supported ca
